Marc Anthony’s “Un Amor Eterno” shoots to the top of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart with a 9-1 burst on the list dated March 20.

The new achievement breaks him out of a tie with Prince Royce (Juanes and Yandel) to become the tropical act with the third most No. 1s, standing behind Romeo Santos (17) and Carlos Vives (15).

“Un Amor Eterno” rallied to the top  with a 58% increase in audience impressions, to 10 million, earned in the week ending March 14. The song scored its biggest gains in the tracking week on New York's WSKQ (up 854,000 in audience) and WPAT (up 626,000), as well as San Juan, Puerto Rico's WZNT (up 610,000) and Los Angeles' KLVE, the latter of which put the song in prominent rotation for the first time (up 387,000).

Before “Un Amor,” Marc Anthony reached No. 1 on Latin Airplay just four weeks ago as “De Vuelta Pa’ La Vuelta,” with Daddy Yankee, jumped 3-1 (Feb. 27-dated list). It’s his first leader, however, without an unaccompanied act since “Vivir Mi Vida,” the 14-week champ, starting June 2013.

Beyond its Latin Airplay coronation, “Un Amor” also steps 2-1 on Tropical Airplay, where Marc Anthony extends his all-time No. 1 record to 34 leaders. He concurrently replaces himself at No. 1 pushing ““De Vuelta” to the runner-up slot with an 11% dip in audience.

“Un Amor Eterno” is the fourth single from Marc Anthony’s Opus, his third studio album which debuted at No. 2 on the all-genre Top Latin Albums chart and at No. 1 on Tropical Albums in May 2019.
